Black President: A Review

This is the first stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon.  Next up, Black President by BHE. I should note that this book is on Kindle Unlimited. As you know, as a reader, I'm a fan of Kindle Unlimited. If you're a reader looking to test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to Black President.

WHEW! When I tell you this book kept me up reading it long after I said I was going to bed, I ain't lying. So let's get into it. The book opens up with First Lady Raynetta Jefferson voicing her disdain for all the disrespect that had been flung at her and her husband, President Stephen Jefferson. I should make note that Stephen is the second Black President in this book as President Obama's reign had come …

One Night: A Review

This is the first stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon. Next up is 'One Night' by Eric Jerome Dickey. I actually reviewed this on Amazon a few months back, but wanted to add it to my website. So here goes and no, this is NOT on Kindle Unlimited. 

I read this book in a matter of hours.I'm not quite sure how to explain this one. While the ending made me want to toss my laptop across the room, I know that Jackie and Mr. Orange County will stay with me for a long time. This story takes place over the span of twelve hours and I don't feel like anything was missing. I loved the way race was discussed. That "Welcome home"/ "Halfway home" thing made me chuckle a bit. 

This book reminded me of the EJD of old. This type of writing is what made me a die-hard EJD reader.…

Disrespectfully Yours: A Review

This is the first stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon. I went to Memphis this past weekend to a literary event and one of the books I purchased was 'Disrespectfully Yours' by Raynesha Pittman.  I should note that this book is on Kindle Unlimited. As you know, as a reader, I'm a fan of Kindle Unlimited. If you're a reader looking to test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to Disrespectfully Yours.


Well to start, reading this book was stressful. There was nobody in this book I could root for, no one! Everybody had their own agenda and at times it got to be a bit too much. The book opens and we meet a young, teenage Meagan. She is blissfully in love with her godfather, who is planning on leaving …

Bi-Visibility Week

It's Bi-Visibility Week! For those not familiar, this is a week set aside to recognize the 'B' in the LGBTQA+ community. We celebrate the gays and the lesbians, the trans, the queers, and even the non-binary, but when it comes to the B-word, many shun them, even going as far as the brush their sexuality under the rug. I've written about this before in another blog where I was promoting my new book Bi-Satisfied. Since it's sometimes easier for women to claim  their bisexuality, I'd like to focus on the men, the black bi-sexual men.

They have the hardest time coming out with their sexuality. Quiet as kept, on some fronts, being a gay black man is more acceptable than being a bi-sexual black man. In the Black community, people don't be believe a man can be bi-sexual. He's either gay, straight, or living on the down-low (the DL). In the Black community, if a Black man has hinted around to being even remotely attracted to men, all hell will break loose. Thi…

A Holiday Wish: A Review

This is the first stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon. Therefore, I put a post on my Facebook page that I was looking for authors to feature on my website. One of the authors who answered was Rose Jackson-Beavers. I asked her what book of hers should I read and she suggested her book, A Holiday Wish. I should note that this book is NOT on Kindle Unlimited. As you know, as a reader, I'm a fan of Kindle Unlimited. If you're a reader looking to test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to A Holiday Wish.


I had the pleasure of reading A Holiday Wish by Rose Jackson-Beavers. The story is for my readers across all genres but mainly traditional Christian fiction lovers. The book opens with high school senior,…

Love's Culture: A Review

This is the first stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon. Therefore, I put a post on my Facebook page that I was looking for authors to feature on my website. One of the authors who answered was Angelia Vernon Menchan. I asked her what book of hers should I read and she suggested her Love's Culture Series. I should note that this series is on Kindle Unlimited as well. So if you're a reader looking to a test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to Love's Culture.


I started this series with high hopes. You have Sadia, who is a PR specialist and a bookstore owner, and Mahad who's an Arabic architect and a well-off business man. The two meet and sparks fly, almost instantly. Mahad's friend Cyrus i…

Are you Bi-Satisfied?

Are you Bi-Satisfied? I am. I'm so happy with the release of my book. The sales are doing pretty damn good. Although, I'm a bit saddened it hasn't come out on Kindle yet, but believe me, I keep stalking Amazon to see when it will be released on the e-book format. This book isn't for everybody and I was aware of that when I wrote it. However, it's still a good story. I wish people could get past their fear and/or disgust of two masculine black men being intimate with one another and enjoy the story instead of focusing solely on the bisexual aspect of it, although it is a huge part of the story.

I want to say thank you to all of my readers and friends who have supported me by buying the book. Aamirah, Shantel, Gabby, Kai Leakes, Tanishia, Kat, Kattory, and HUGE shoutout to Sammie Preston. You guys rock! Much love to my agent, who always has my back. Thank you to James C. Lewis of Noire 3000 Studios in Atlanta, Georgia for my eye-catching cover and the female cover mo…
